Busy Bees @ Hewish 2023-24

Welcome to Busy Bees @ Hewish.

We are really looking forward to getting to know your children and commence our exciting learning journey together.

In Terms 1 and 2 our overall learning enquiry question is ‘What makes me special and belong?’  During this enquiry we will also be answering our mini questions: ‘Who am I and how am I special?’, ‘How are we the same and different?’, ‘Who is in my family?’, ‘What is special about our school?’, ‘Who is in our community?’ and ‘What do we celebrate?’

Please see the link to our knowledge organiser Knowledge organiser Terms 1 and 2 2023-24 

This will give you a list of the key vocabulary that we will be using during our learning enquiry and some suggested books about different types of families that you could share with your child.

Please could your child leave their PE kit in school.  We will send PE kits home at the end of each term to be washed. Our PE days are Tuesdays and Fridays.

Dates for your diary

On Thursday 5th October at 5.30pm in the school hall at our West Wick site, we will be holding a phonics and early maths information evening for all parents/carers of our Busy Bees children from both sites. The evening will be less than an hour in length and will give you an insight into how we teach phonics and maths so that you can support your child’s learning at home.  We hope to see as many of you as possible.

Our learning review meetings will be held after school on Tuesday 10th October and Thursday 12th October. 

Friday 13th October is a training day for staff and the school will be closed for pupils.

Term 2 starts on Monday 30th October.

Our Nativity performance will be held on Friday 15th December at 2.30pm in the school hall at Hewish.
